OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIs it easy for you to ask for help when you need it, or do you prefer to rely only on yourself? Why?

Is not easy for me, I don’t know why. Maybe because I don’t want to bother others with my problems. I’m not a rock. I don’t like being a burden for my loved ones and I’m too shy with strangers. Even asking for help in a store when I need it is difficult. Or ask for directions when lost… I don’t understand why I chose Journalism being so shy, because I had to spend my whole professional life talking to strangers to ask them difficult questions. If I have to ask for others (my readers, my family, my friends) I usually have no problem. But when it’s for me I get confused insecure and consider myself with no right to steal anyone’s time.
